Before you start

To avoid the cancellation of Christmas, plan your project carefully and allow sufficient time to complete.

Apply for permit DEC25 to get permission from relevant authorities to break aviation speed limits and enter people's homes without them knowing.

Make sure paints, varnishes and sharp tools are kept out of the reach of elves. Once you're done with the sleigh, check out our guide to painting techniques to keep your Grotto looking slick and stylish this festive season.

1

Create a solid structure

Travelling at speed of up to 1,800 miles/sec requires a strong base. We recommend using Wickes Extra Strong Clear Adhesive

2

Affix Lights

Weather conditions may vary between poles so we suggest employing Wickes White LED square deck lights.

3

Fit Security

Stop your sleigh getting stolen whilst parked in dubious neighbourhoods by using a Master Lock Armoured Cable.

4

Build Storage Space

When you’re couriering 7.125 billion parcels around the globe you can never have enough shelving in the boot of your sleigh. We recommend a Wickes Beech Effect Shelf.

Health & Safety

  • Do not operate power tools under the influence of sherry.
